Chin & Neck Liposuction

The chin and neck can hold some of the most startling signs of weight gain and age. A so-called double chin or turkey neck both arise from excess, sagging skin and an unwanted buildup of fat. In the interest of eliminating fat and restoring beautiful, elegant contours in the neck, Dr. Karamanoukian performs premier chin and neck liposuction in his Los Angeles office. With his graceful and compassionate approach, the results of chin and neck liposuction are 100% tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Benefits of Chin and Neck Liposuction

For patients complaining of a neck or chin that has become bloated, the good news is that chin and neck liposuction is the perfect solution. With careful, precise liposuction techniques, Dr. Karamanoukian can sculpt the neck and chin into the ideal shape. In delivering chin and neck liposuction, Dr. Karamanoukian does much more than reduce fat content—he uses liposuction to bring balance and symmetry to the neck in a way that most flatters the entire face. With his integrated approach and passion for perfect results, Dr. Karamanoukian strives to deliver the best chin and neck liposuction Los Angeles has available.

  • All in all, the benefits of chin and neck liposuction include:
  • Elimination or reduction of a so-called double chin
  • Reduction of fat in the neck, creating a pleasing transition from the neck to the jawline
  • More defined jawline

Liposuction Combined with a Neck Lift

While chin and neck liposuction is an effective procedure to eliminate unwanted fat, it will not address any excess skin that may be present. For patients with both unwanted fat and loose, hanging skin, a neck lift may also be performed to address every cosmetic aspect of the neck. A neck lift is a procedure that eliminates excess skin and tightens underlying tissues in the neck when they have become loose. In this way, a neck lift eliminates folds and wrinkles that contribute to an aged appearance. In his Los Angeles office, Dr. Karamanoukian commonly combines a neck lift with chin and neck liposuction, as it is frequently the most effective way to get the best possible results.

Minimally Invasive Tumescent Liposuction

In contrast to traditional liposuction in which the patient is fully unconscious, Dr. Karamanoukian uses a technique known as pure tumescent liposuction.

  • This technique offers many advantages over previous forms of liposuction, including:
  • Minimal blood loss
  • More rapid recovery
  • Less post-operative pain
  • Improved aesthetic result
  • Decreased risk

This technique uses a special anesthetic called tumescent anesthetic. Tumescent means hardened or swollen. This type of anesthetic causes the treatment area to swell, while concurrently shrinking capillaries in the treatment area. Both functions cause the liposuction to be safer and more effective, all while keeping the patient wide awake during the entire procedure.
